Harriet Foster Beecher (California, Washington 1854-1915)
Harriet "Harriet" Foster Beecher was born in Mishawaka, IN on Nov. 12, 1854. "Hattie" Foster was raised in South Bend and educated at St Mary's Academy there. After moving to San Francisco in 1875, she studied at the School of Design under Virgil Williams and privately with Oscar Kunath. In 1881 she married Captain Henry Ward Beecher and moved to Washington. Although Seattle and Port Townsend were her homes after that time, she made many trips to California to visit her mother and daughter and exhibit with the San Francisco Art Association.
In 1915 she was one of few women artists selected to serve on the Panama Pacific International Exposition Advisory Committee for the West. Mrs. Beecher died near Allentown, WA on March 30, 1915. Her paintings of Washington pioneers and the local Indians are characterized by a loose, Impressionist style.
Exhibited: World's Columbian Exposition (Chicago), 1893; Mark Hopkins Institute, 1898, 1903; San Francisco Art Ass'n, 1900.
